Have been thinking a lot about this trip lately. Such a beautiful city!
Such great photos! how would you rate this experience? Planning to go to Turkey for my honeymooon and I am collecting as much information as possible before that:)
Would greatly appreciate your opinion!
could i know what your camera to take your picture ? Thanks
I love your pictures. It really captures the rush and vibrancy of the city.
Thank you, Jasmine!
Dream of going to Istanbul one day…pretty photos! 🙂
Cool looking bazaar! I will have to put it on my hit list! My family and I have just started planning our year long RTW trip. Your pictures are really inspiring us!
i’ve been in Istanbul twice but I missed this place. i did attemp going here but i was lost, i arrived on another bazar instead. reading this post fulfills my wish.
I love how you capture the vibrancy and the energy of the place. The quality of the pictures are just amazing.
Wonderful photos, capturing the vivid colors of the market. Thanks for sharing!
I was going to write something about the Grand Bazaar, but I chanced upon yours. Never in a million years will I be able to do justice… great photos! I’m an amateur so I’ve been walking around taking pictures with my phone! Did you buy anything from the Bazaar? I bought a lamp and had the pleasure of protecting throughout the rest of my trip.
It’s such a beautiful place!
Very nice photographs. I recently returned from Istanbul, my favorite part was the street cats!
Thanks itsanika! Yes, there were plenty of cute cats in Istanbul, also here in Tbilisi. My friends are always yelling at me for feeding them. 😉
we went on our honeymoon and loved Istanbul…thank you for sharing you amazing photos and bringing back memories!
What a lovely place for a honeymoon, Lauren. There is certainly a lot of romance in this exotic city.
Even James Bond was there, in “Skyfall”.
Can you believe I’ve never watched a James Bond film? But yes, I did hear that there were some great scenes from that one in Istanbul!
Did you never come across a James Bond film or are you against them for a reason?
Not sure, honestly! It just never happened. I’m not opposed to them, just never felt any great urge to watch them. Maybe now I have a reason. 🙂
In my opinion “Casino Royale” (2006) is the best Bond film, but of course it also depends which of the actors you prefer. Pierce Brosnan was my favourite one.
I haven’t seen “Skyfall” yet, but if you’re at all into vintage Bond, then surely you must watch “From Russia with Love” it was all done in Istanbul in the sixties.
That and “Goldfinger” were some of the best Bond movies in my view.
I can’t get over the colours and textures. ❤ God, I have to go there.
Yes! The colours are amazing! Istanbul has been on my bucket list for so long, hope I’ll get there soon.
I hope you do, bigcities! It’s a full-sensory experience.
Aren’t they, Ceri? Lots more to come, too!
ahh the colors and shapes of turkey are amazing. I want all of those rugs and lamps!! jealous of your travels, looks like a good one 🙂
I wanted to buy them all too, Francesca! Such a fantastic city and culture.
I really felt like I was walking through the market with you while looking at these photos. Great work!
So glad to hear it, beatnomad! I haven’t had a chance to write about the experience yet, but more to come soon.
Loved the lamps!
Me too, JoAnne. I wanted to bring all of them home!
Ahh finally you’ve made it to Istanbul! 🙂 I can’t wait for more pictures and stories from the city. It feels like yesterday that I walked down the alleys of the Grand Bazaar.
Yes, finally, Bama! I adore that city. Still dreaming about the colors, scents, and sounds. I haven’t had a chance to write about the experiences yet, but I will soon.
Very beautiful pictures for a lovely place – some years ago we spent hours walking around and getting lost… We´re also curios – did you buy anything?
Thanks pushandreset! Yes, I did buy a few things. No lanterns, sadly… I couldn’t have packed them, nor would I know how to hang them in my little apartment in Tbilisi. I bought a nice leather bag embellished with traditional Turkish carpet pieces, and a few other trinkets. And of course, turkish delights, pistachios, and a few evil eyes.

The colors pop! Great photos.
Thanks Nina! The colors were even more spectacular in person.
Beautiful place!! Could spend hours walking around this market. Great photos!
Isn’t it gorgeous, Jana? I spent more than a few hours wandering blissfully.
Oh those carpets …. oh, those pashminas … drool ….. wonder if you bought anything?
I did, Alison! No lanterns or pashminas sadly, but a nice leather bag decorated with pieces of handmade Turkish carpet, some cool shoes, and lots of edible goodies. More stories to come soon!
You know how I feel about lanterns and light… Thank you for bringing both into my life anew. I miss you more than you know.
The lanterns and light were so you, twin. Can’t wait till we can explore Istanbul together!
Amazing pictures! Thanks for posting them!
Thank you for the kind comment, Mary! So glad you enjoyed the post. More to come soon.
Tolerance and beauty of this country would like to invite everyone to Turkey, I’m sure will be the most wonderful experience in your life
Turkey certainly is spectacular, Celebi! Thank you for stopping by.
Very colorful. Looks like you’re having fun over there…:o)
It was a beautiful and much-needed vacation, Vance! Much more to come.

Thank you for the reblog, anisio!
NÃO AGRADEÇA. FAÇO A MINHA PARTE… ABRAÇOS…

Yes, too many beautiful things. I could have done some serious damage to my bank account that day! 😉
Reblogged this on Take Ya There and commented:
Ever been? Or know of another amazing market? Let’s hear it below as a comment.
The bazaar in Damascus was also beautiful. But that was a few years ago.
Really amazing photos. I’ve been here as well and loved it. These photos do it justice. I’ve reblogged this over on Take Ya There and am now following your site. Cheers!
Thank you so much for the kind words, “Sean Kingston”! 😉
